Smile No longer a diabetic

I was encoraged to tell you all my story. I have been back on low carb since Jan. At that time my sugar level was in the 200's and I was on medication and one step away from taking insulin. My siblings ( a twin brother and baby sister) are both on two shots a day and up to 4 pills . I was scared. I hate needles. I have a serious phobia. Well I made up my mind this year was going to be the year I took my heath seriously. So my blood work came back Monday and my doctor looked me straight in the eyes and smiled and said,"Donna, You are now a non Diabectic according to your blood work". My glucose level was 4.5 from 8.5 three months ago. He even called in the new doctor and told her that I was proof that low carb eating was healthier way to elimate diabetes. Well I was shocked. I had reach one of my goals . My sugar level yestersday evening was 87. The normal level is 100.
So thanks to a wonderful Doctor for starting me back to a healtier me. My next goal is to lower my cholestrol without medication. I will report back in three months. For he thinks with medication and diet this do will be elimated.

Wow Donna. That's amazing!

Isn't it a great feeling to be living proof that low-carb works?
